Default Just received my two Kimber 82's

Rifles are perfect execpt for a 6 inch very light cut on both of the stocks. No rust anywhere . The bolts had the normal goo but cleaned up easly. Anyone have a quick fix for the cuts. I may try a steam iron and towel . and see what happends.
I made a mistake and ordered 15,000 rounds of the Remington surplus a month after they ran out and guess what. It was delivered as well. Can't beat the CMP when it comes for doing that extra little bit. Thanks, Ed

Sounds nice, like what I received recently.....only one.........

As far as quick fix for the stock slash, I let some pure tung oil set on for 1/2 hour, color now blends in with rest of the stock. If you turn/look sideways at the stock, there's no missing the cut line since the rest of the wood is smooth-hardened with whatever original hard topcote finish Kimber put on. The only way to make it go away, and not a quick fix would be to carefully sand entire affected area to depth of the cut, then strip and refinish entire stock. I'll live with mine as received. Once you blend the color of the lite/bare scratch, it's not too horrific.

I'm sure that some of the people on the Forum will help you correct that "mistake"!

Try some Toms 1/3 wax mix in the scratch. Force it in the scratch , let it sit 24 hrs and lightly buff out across the direction of the scratch. You'll be surprised at the results

A bit of heat will melt the wax into the scratch. Just like fixing a scuff with shoe polish.
